Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (Greenville, SC) in June 2015.

Interview

Went in and took a tour of the facility also interacted with some of the current package handlers to see what the job consists of. It's nonstop work with minimum pay($11/hr). The free benefits after a year of employment is the balance to the low wage. I was told they like to target the college crowd as they have position they would like to fill if your college degree fits the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at UPS (Spokane, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, takes around 10 minutes. You go over your application, whether you're going to school, confirm that you're physically able to do the job. I had two interviews, one with the hr rep, and one with the supervisor. The same day I went to a third person which finalized the process and asked me to provide an SSN, and then advised me to complete forms online by the following Monday bringing in an ID and SS Card. There was no facility tour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS (Pacific, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went to the UPS website and entered my application info and once that was done I was immediately given the option of signing up for an interview date. They had an option for choosing multiple dates but only one was offered.

    On the date I went to the site and went to the HR area where I and about 22 other people waited. It started with the HR woman telling us about the job and how difficult it is and how the benefits would work. She also said that UPS wanted a one year commitment, something the website never mentioned.

    After her speech we went on a tour of the facility and she explained in detail what the job involved. After the tour we returned to the office and waited awhile while she decided if there was enough time for her to interview us all.

    She decided there wasn't so she called us out of the office one by one and gave us days to come back for proper one on one interviews.

    I decided that a one year commitment wasn't for me and decided to cancel the one one one interview.

    Clothing is pretty relaxed. The environment is a warehouse so no heels or sandals but a pair of khakis and a polo is about as dressed u as anyone I saw was.

    Interview Questions

    • She really stressed how the job was a lot of work with no downtime aside from assigned breaks.   Answer Question

    Interview

    During the interview process, it was pretty simple. Walked in to the office room where i met other individuals who applied for the position. Was debriefed on how tough and grueling the work load will be on a daily basis. With no designated water breaks or to just catch your breath. After that we took a tour around the facility and was shown the process of how everything becomes sorted out and shipped out in time. Lastly met one on one with the HR manager where she asked 3 simple questions. Do you have reliable transportation? Are you in college? Are you able to perform the duties of the job?
